The slim and simple design gives a sense of continuity from the tonearm to the stylus tip. Reducing the number of parts leads to a reduction in vibration. In addition, the bare screws that join the head shell on previous products have been integrated inside the body to reduce exposure and resonance. Besides traditional listeners, these evolutions are also oriented well towards modern pop and jazz, supported by a wide range of genres.
With a worldwide following, this product combines ease of use and design at a high level. Designed to enhance the visibility of the stylus and ease of operation when replacing. The thin handle designed for dropping the stylus on the record gently and the simple construction of the body were highly praised. The functional design and the high perfection of each component will satisfy the users as well.
In order to get closer as possible to the ideal frequency response, Nagaoka adjusted the hardness of the damper rubber and core materials. You can feel the difference between the MP and MM. While the MP and MM have the same power generator, the structures of the cantilever are different. Also by selecting and adjusting the damper rubber and stylus tip, Nagaoka found the best balance.
